Update on WWE and Michael Sam, SmackDown Viewership Up

– Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL draftee, may not be appearing on next week’s WWE RAW, even if he wanted to accept the invite, as he’s expected to sign with the Dallas Cowboys this week. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Sam is headed to Dallas for a physical on Wednesday and if all goes well, he’ll be a member of the Cowboy’s practice squad.

Sam has not responded to WWE’s invite yet. His invite is currently the top story on WWE’s website.

– Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown, with The Wyatt Family vs. Mark Henry, Big Show, and Roman Reigns in the main event, drew 2.730 million viewers, up from last week’s 2.461 million viewers. SmackDown was Friday’s highest rated original cable program.
